This advisory body will make recommendations to the Council’s Police Oversight Committee that will assist Buffalo in strengthening its community-police relationship. The Police Oversight Committee is accepting applications for seats on its community advisory body until December 1. The Police Oversight Committee is looking for applicants that bring expertise in policy, community relations, and that are representative of the residents of Buffalo. Applicants must be residents of The City of Buffalo. The advisory body will meet with general public and Buffalo Police Department officials.

The advisory body is expected to begin its work in early 2018.
